Editorial Reviews

Widely considered to be the Barbra Streisand
of Japan, Saori Yuki released her debut album in
Japan in 1969 and went on to make over 30 albums
in her 42 years. Yuki discovered Pink Martini after
the band covered her song Taya Tan for their 2007
album Hey Eugene! Most recently, she sang a verse
of Silent Night in Japanese for the band s hit 2010
holiday album Joy To The World.
In honor of the year of her debut release, Saori Yuki
partnered with Pink Martini and producer Thomas
M. Lauderdale to create a loving tribute to the
music released in 1969. Featuring Japanese pop hits
alongside internationally recognized tunes like Jorge
Ben s Mas que nada and Puff the Magic Dragon,
1969 is a brilliant collaboration featuring Thomas M.
Lauderdale s magical arrangements, Pink Martini s
stellar musicianship, and Saori Yuki s soaring vocals.

FYI, the *entire* album is not in Japanese. True, the singer is Japanese vocalist Yuki Saori (who, in Japan, is aptly compared to Barbra Streisand), and she does sing in her native language, but she also preforms in French and Portuguese as well - a la Thomas M. Lauderdale's penchant for incorporating many languages into his music. Granted, Peter Yarrow's "Puff the Magic Dragon" and Peggy Lee's 1969 hit "Is That All There Is?" are sung in Japanese, as is "Wasuretainoni" [otherwise recognized as Bobby Vinton's 1968 version of "I Love How You Love Me"], but I challenge any singer to perform them better than Ms. Yuki has done. Likewise, IMHO, Thomas Lauderdale is not only one of best pianists around today, he is also a Master at Arrangement. You are not going to find too many albums with the same brilliant musicality that "1969" presents, regardless of the language involved.

I adore Pink Martini in all their manifestations... I'll admit, not being a Japanese speaker, that this album is a bit heavy to chew for me, but the music is just astounding (as it always is with this amazing "small jazz orchestra"). I miss China, most certainly, and wish her precious pipes and vocal cords a SPEEDY RECOVERY! but Saori Yuki is just as distinctive... just a little different. Beautiful sound, but I find these songs easiest *for me* when played randomly with the other Pink Martini albums... your mileage will vary, but this is a beautiful and as usual an amazing album. ;)

This album is a bit of a delirious dream, a love affair between the sublime and the ecstatic--j-pop lounge jazz arrangements of music from the late 1960's, sung with tender purity by the divine Saori Yuki. You need to be in full fusion mode to get this--but if you are used to Pink Martini's brand of music, this will make its own sense to you. I'm enjoying it more than I thought I would, but for me it is something akin to fascinating and sophisticated background music: good at a party, but probably not something I'm going to listen to on its own frequently. That said, the vocalise from "Yoaki no scat" is one of the loveliest things I have heard recently.

I actually think it's great that the album doesn't have any songs sung in English -- I have been a huge fan of Pink Martini for years. I have all of their previous albums and most of my favorite songs are those they sing in other languages (Taya Tan, Ou Est Ma Tete etc) and I also happen to love Japanese music so I was thrilled to see this album. Yes, a couple of songs are also in French and Portuguese -- also fantastic. Du soleil plein les yeux is worth the price of the album alone.

I have previously owned some songs by Pink Martini, though I wouldn't say I am overly familiar with their work. I am a Japanese student, so I was curious when I saw Saori Yuki was part of this album, so I picked it up. Great selection of tracks; I've listened to this album so many times and love it everytime. Highly recommended.

This is a very lyrical collaboration between Pink Martini and Saori Yuki. It doesn't take knowledge of the language to enjoy this album. Some of the tunes are very recognizable, and the musicianship is excellent.

Good music, I didn't know Saori Yuki, Japanese singer played with Pink Martini. She has very beautiful voice and is sinnging with her elder sister for a long time since they were children.
